Hey, welcome!

That's really great, I used to play CrocoDS on my NDS a lot a long time ago. I'll definitely give it a try  ;)

Great! my beloved cpc 464 with green screen monitor is gaming system I most enjoyed. I'm too busy now but will try when I use my RG350. Thanks

Thanks! Great emulator. How Can I save the configuration? Because when I start the emulator again the configuration is reset to the default.

Is this emu running at 60fps full speed with smooth scrolling and flawless sound?

The Amstrad CPC emu I used on my GP2X years ago (ported by zx-81) was very good but suffered from scrolling problems due to vsync issues in some games and had sound problems  :(

Not sure if its 60fps for most games as the emulator has no on screen FPS counter, does have a sync option of on/off but saw no change to the games i tested, Not sure about the sound as i don't remember how bad or good the sound was on an amstrad, but sound sounded boosted/based out and somewhat bad to me.

Big problem for me was that a lot of games in .dsk format failed to work, but work on other Amstrad CPC emulators, i don't mean the game fails to load, i mean for example 3D Star strike loads to the menu and you can bring up the on-screen keyboard and select your choice but once the game starts it just freezes, Other games would just freeze after loading, some would not work with on-screen keyboard input so stuck on title screen, some seem to use a strangle screen mode/rez which either has the game with the whole screen corrupt or the game screen is fine but the menu when pressing select is corrupt.

But as it's an Alpha version i hope it gets updated and becomes a good emulator for Amstrad CPC and also i would like it to load GX4000 carts if that's possible.
Lots of Handhelds but my favourite is still my GCW Zero and also RG-350, But the RG-300 is 2nd Best.

Added keyboard shortcut (R1 button)
Added resize shortcut (L1 button)

Just UI changes for now. Emulation improvments will be done later ;)
Thanks for the games that failed. It will help

Thanks for the update, R1 to bring up the keyboard will save time ;D

Also noticed you have ported Milky Tracker as well, not tested that yet but thanks as i use Milky Tracker on my Linux Computer so really great to see it for RG350 ;)

Works great, thanks. I only notice that the bottom part is a tiny bit cut off.

Just 2 rows when CPC display is not in 320x200. But annoying :(
I'm trying to fix that

Try this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tkf72uvwz9zezsc/crocods.ipk?dl=0

But a bit slow :(

I'll look how I could speed it up.

I'm trying to run Orion Prime (http://orion.cpcscene.net/downloadPage.php) with CrocoDS on a Pocket Go 2 (similar to RG350) and it keeps asking me to "insert side 3" - is it a bug in CrocoDS or am I doing something wrong?
